General Information about Camp Waipu Cove

Dairy and Takeaways

There is a dairy (small grocery store) located 100m from Camp Waipu Cove, where you can buy everything from fruit and vegetables to hot fish and chips. The dairy also sells fresh bread, milk and other grocery items, along with cold drinks, ice creams, potato chips etc. The Cove Cafe and restaurant is just across the road from Camp Waipu Cove and serves a great selection of food (open Thurs - Tues year round and 7 days over the summer).


There are BBQs on the day reserve at the southern end of our Waipu Cove camping ground (this is the beachfront public area that is also maintained by Camp Waipu Cove - your ideal Northland holiday park). There is also a BBQ area located at each of the three ablutions blocks in the camp itself.

Motor Homes

Camp Waipu Cove holiday park has a dump station onsite for your convenience.


A limited supply of linen is available for hire when you book in to stay in one of the Kitchen Cabins at our Waipu Cove accommodation. Linen is available at the Camp Waipu Cove office for $10 per bed (regardless of the length of your stay).


Each Waipu Cove camp site or cabin has space for parking one vehicle. There is also space allocated next to the Camp Waipu Cove office for one more vehicle per site / cabin. Your day visitors should park on the road outside our Waipu Cove holiday park.


The Camp Waipu Cove office is open each day from 7.00am to 10.00pm (during peak times) and 7.30am to 9pm in the off-peak season. We are happy to help you with anything to make your stay as fun and relaxing as possible. 

Arrival and Departure

Check-in time for sites is 1pm, check-in time for cabins is 2pm. Check-out time for all accommodation at Waipu Cove is 10.00am. During the off-peak season powered and non-powered sites can request a 5pm check out for an additional $15 per site. Please ask at reception if you would like to take advantage of this option.


Unfortunately we are not able to allow pets on-site. We are situated right next to the Waipu Wildlife Refuge, home to the New Zealand fairy tern, probably New Zealand's most endangered indigenous breeding bird.
